Your guide to success on the Seven Summits
A climber looking up towards the summit of Mount Everest

The Seven Summits journey is an amazing expedition experience, not only in terms of mountaineering but also the overall travel and opportunity to experience different cultures and environments around the world.

We have helped many people to achieve this goal and both our CEO, Guy Cotter, and several of our lead guides have completed their personal Seven Summits. The original founders of Adventure Consultants, Rob Hall and Gary Ball, completed the Seven Summits in seven months in 1990! This was the Mount Kosciuszko version—a first at the time.

Talk to our team about how we can make your Seven Summits journey a reality. We have several pathways available to suit your timeframe and budget.

Introductory Mountaineering Course

It's important to start with the development of robust technical mountaineering skills. From mastering snow, rock, and ice climbing to honing rope handling, glacier travel, and crevasse rescue skills, a solid foundation is crucial. While some of these skills you'll learn along the way, we strongly recommend that if you haven't undergone a mountaineering instruction course, consider it your initial step.
